A Bayou Dinner in Less Than an Hour
It's possible to make jambalaya for fewer than 100 people—and to do it in less than 12 hours, to boot. This version of the traditional Southern one-pot meal, from Carla Snyder, author of One Pan, Two Plates: More Than 70 Complete Weeknight Meals for Two, comes together in 35 minutes. And with just four chicken thighs, eight shrimp and three ounces of andouille sausage, it makes the perfect amount for two hungry eaters.
